About this Tour Stop...

Held in conjunction with San Antonio's 250th birthday, the HemisFair, San Antonio's 1968 World's Fair, attracted more the 6.3 million visitors. The theme of the fair was the "The Confluence of Civilizations in the Americas," and it sparked a massive transformation in the River Walk area. Out of the original structures, 24 have been preserved.
